New York College of Osteopathic Medicine

New York College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYCOM) is the osteopathic medical college of the New York Institute of Technology located in Old Westbury, Long Island, NY. Established in 1977, NYCOM is the only accredited medical institution in Nassau County, New York. The College has clinical affiliations with multiple hospitals throughout Long Island, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Upstate New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Furthermore, NYCOM provides its alumni and other osteopathic medical graduates with residency and internship training opportunities through the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine Educational Consortium (NYCOMEC). The New York College of Osteopathic Medicine also provides physicians educated in countries other than the United States the opportunity to obtain medical training in the United States through its Advanced Program for Emigre Physicians (APEP). After completion of the 4-year APEP program, physicians with foreign credentials receive the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree and are able to apply to DO and MD residency match programs as American graduates.

The mission statement of the university states that New York College of Osteopathic Medicine is committed to training osteopathic physicians for a lifetime of medical practice and learning based on established science and critical thinking, integrating osteopathic philosophy, principles and practice. The college is committed to fostering careers in primary care and a scholarly pursuit of new knowledge concerning human health and disease. The focus is on the health care problems of the inner city and rural communities. NYCOM provides a firm educational foundation as part of a continuum of learning, including postdoctoral education. This foundation will provide the osteopathic physician with the means to be a competent and compassionate member of the osteopathic medical profession, and to contribute to society and to the profession by the application of new knowledge, as well as through practice, teaching and administration.

As per US News and World Report, NYCOM has the second largest total enrollment among osteopathic medical schools and third largest total enrollment among all medical schools (MD and DO) in the United States.
